Great and unique combo cruise excursion in Ensenada - a guided ATV ride to see the famous blowhole, La Bufadora! This is a good opportunity for the whole family to enjoy the fun.
The meeting point for your ATV and Bufadora shore excursion will be right outside the cruise pier just steps from your ship. The friendly, English speaking shore excursion staff will get your checked in and your adventure going. The ATVs are set-up and waiting just steps away.
The Ensenada shore excursion guides will go over all of the safety instructions, give you driving tips and answer any questions you might have. Then you will put on your goggles and helmet, get on your ATV and follow the lead guide out on the route.
The drive to La Bufadora is pretty and will take about an hour to get there (about 21 miles). As you travel down the peninsula, enjoy some of the area's scenic views.
The famous blowhole has a story that is was once a baby humpback whale that was migrating with its pod. It got separated and swam to the shoreline. It turned into stone and still spouts as a signal to the pod. It is actually created by wave action that pushes air into an underwater cave. Then as the wave goes out, the air in the cave is forced out a hole in the roof of the cave. It does resemble a whale's blow or spout.
LA Bufadora is one of the largest ocean blowholes of North America. The spouts is creates can reach heights over 100ft high. There is a viewing platform where guests may watch the action. The platform is 80ft above the waterline and the spout if often well overhead. You will have approximately an hour to view and take photos (do not forget your camera).
The cruise excursion guides will then lead the group back on the ATVs and return to the starting point back at the Ensenada cruise ship pier area.
Note: The minimum age to drive the ATV solo is 12yrs old. A photo ID is required of all those wishing to drive on this shore excursion. Parents need to keep in mind there child's maturity level and capabilities to handle an ATV alone.
Awesome and well worth it!
Not knowing what to do while in Ensenada, I came across this excursion. And I'm glad I did. We had an awesome time. You see parts of the city that you would not otherwise see in a car or shuttle bus. It's a beautiful drive out to la bufordora blowhole. I can't say enough about the staff. Just amazing friendly all around. From the time they pick you up in front of the terminal, to the time you take your helmet off at the end of the ride..The two guides we had were just fantastic. Our front guide Alhaundro, was just a riot. Great young man. And his friend who was the rear guide was just filling in to help out was just as great. I definitely would do this excursion again. Highly highly recommend for a great day in Ensenada.
